Genesis 2:4-3:24 New International Version 

[…]

4 | This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.

5 | Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground, 

6 | but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground. 

7 | Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

8 | Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed.

9 | The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

[…]

25 Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.

The Fall

1 | Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

2 | The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,

3 | but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”

4 | “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 

5 | “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

6 | When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. 

7 | Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves. ■
